It is two-and-a-half years since Avani Davda took on the top job at Tata Starbucks. She was mentored at Bombay House before being handpicked into a leadership role when Tatas partnered Starbucks in 2011. Davda worked on the project right from scratch at Starbucks’ headquarters in Seattle before Starbucks opened its first store in India in October of 2012.

Avani credits her success to the people who inspired her – from family to the folks at the Tata Group. She asserts inspiration is a big factor in leadership and for her, that’s what enriches the learning curve.
